It is important to note that while the notice will display a simulated bill that will forecast what property owners can expect, the Notice of Assessment mailed in April it is NOT a bill.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Assessors has also launched the new Homestead Exemption online application, which will eliminate the need for residents to file for an exemption in person. Homeowners can file for an exemption by going to rockdalecountyga.gov, going to the “County Departments” tab, hovering over “Board of Assessors” and clicking on “Homestead Exemptions”. From there, Homeowners should click on the link “Online Homestead Application”. From there, Homeowners will be directed to a new homepage, where a search for a particular address may take place. Full instructions of how to file for the exemption online can be seen in this video: https://vimeo.com/521413569

The deadline to file for the exemption is April 1st of each taxable year. In addition to the convenience of filing online, residents will only have to file for the Homestead Exemption once, unless they are filing for a different exemption (i.e. a senior or disability exemption). For more information, please contact the Board of Assessors at boa@rockdalecountyga.gov or (770) 278-7676.
